Unless something changes and I hear the next book is great, I don’t think I will be reading any more books in this series, or by this author. Not for me. And this PAINS ME GREATLY. I love Superman. I love Lois & Clark. I love Lois Lane.
I don’t know if the novelty has just worn off for me and her style has always been this way, or if I’ve changed, or if she really has lost steam, but I’m just not feeling this series at all. It feels mundane and obvious. The characters don’t have depth for me anymore, the dialogue is clichéd, and a lot of times, pointless. The plots are terrible. (That has remained constant from book one for me.) I still find it absurd that a teenager would be given so much freedom, and be so involved in so many things in such implausible ways. (This is probably another side effect of the tone not working for me; I’ve been more than willing to overlook such things in the past.) I was utterly uncompelled throughout.
The only thing that salvaged this book for me, and the only reason I’m giving it two stars, is that Lois and Clark finally meet. But even that, which was the part of the book that had the most life in it, lacked the tension and spark I have always found when these two characters get together.
